As a former firefighter, Dave knows too well the heartache of pain and suffering. In the midst of suffering is when people most need compassion and the love of Christ. Dave has a heart for those who are hurting and is committed to providing Christ-centered compassion in his role as Minister of Pastoral Care at Magnolia Church and as a chaplain for hospitals and disaster relief. It is no wonder Dave enjoys old TV shows such as Rescue 8 and Emergency. They reflect his desire to serve when others are most in need of service.
